The Chip Bag


The inspiration for this short comic comes from my experience in Xiamen, which is my hometown. When I was at home, I felt like a different person than I am here. There is an atmosphere in Xiamen that I can perceive from no other places. The beach and the seaside in Xiamen is the place where I would like to hang out with friends. It is like an escape house for us. I can only have freedom when I was there. The real freedom that I can say anything and be anything.

There is not much emphasis on the storyline. The whole project is focusing on small details of life in Xiamen. Small figures living their little lives.
